For the 2nd film at your Community Club given the season, what better time to show Frank Capra’s Xmas classic ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ on Saturday 23rd December at 2pm (doors open 1.30pm). I know most of you will be familiar with the story of George Bailey (played in a heart breaking performance by James Stewart), a man in deep despair who is shown an alternate reality of how his family and friends would have been affected if he had never been born. However, given it was released in 1946, how many of you would have been around and had the chance to see it on the big screen - apart from maybe some of the committee members!? So please, come along and share one of the all-time great films with…
As Christmas rushes up we can still go to the bowls club for Sunday short mat, ping and a swifter with friends and fellow members. The new calendar for the season is being planned and ideas are fast forming for a new film club - details to be announced shortly but with a bowling film on 30th November to wet our appetite followed by a Christmas special. Short mat Sundays 3 - 6pm Table tennis Mondays, Wednesdays and occasionally Fridays 6 - 8.30pm Other events and activities will be announced in due course
If you're a member please don't forget to come along and help shape the club for next year. Lots of ideas buzzing around for next year but this needs YOU and others to make them happen. NO OUTDOOR BOWLS now but we have the short mat so we may have a game after the meeting. News about winter activities and opening times will be posted.
Our green will start having it's winter maintenance on 2nd October. Our last day of outdoor bowls will be 1st October until next April. Let's hope for some fine weather. But we now have a short mat in the pavilion for those occasions when play is not possible outside or over the winter. Come and try your hand at short mat bowls - it's different.
